Stuckey (Stucky, Stucki) family

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Stuckey (Stucky, Stucki), a Mennonite family of Swiss descent, originally living in the Bernese Ober­land. Peter Stucki died as a martyr at Bern in 1538. In the 18th and 19th centuries members of this family lived in the Bernese Jura, particularly in the Pruntrut (Porrentruy) district. By the early 18th century some Swiss Stuckis had settled in Al­sace; Christen Stucki (born circa 1687) of Diemtigen in the Bernese Oberland was one of the emigrants to the Netherlands in 1711, and settled with this family near Sappemeer. His descendants in the 19th century left the Mennonite Church.

The first Stuckeys in America came from Alsace in 1830 (see Stuckey, Joseph). They were Amish. Others came from Volhynia in 1874 to where a Stucki family had emi­grated from the canton of Bern in 1740. There are numerous descendants in America.
